New Ways of Seeing: Foxfire

From Micah Vanderhoof, Theater Manager

dir. Annette Haywood-Carter, US, 1996
Streaming on Hulu

Annette Haywood-Carter directs this modernized-to-1996 adaptation which follows a girl gang led by “Legs” (Angelina Jolie), and new-to-school “Maddie” (Hedy Burress) as they band together to fend off the sexism surrounding them at school and life all set against the backdrop of grungy 90’s Portland. Heavily featuring Jefferson High School and with some stunning sequences on the Broadway Bridge, this essential 90s grungy girl-gang film should scratch that itch you’ve got to run wild in the streets of Portland.
